Subject: How can anyone not like this tape
Graduated in 82, someone left this tape at my house, no date, no venue, just one kick ass tape. In the 30 years I have owned this tape, I have turned at least 20 non-deadheads into heads, have made friends, some great friends over listening to this tape,and probably have made over 200 recordings of this for friends. The sound is awesome, the recording is awesome, and if you don't croon with Jerry on High Time than you ain't no Deadhead

Subject: Super Lesh Overdrive Barn Burner!
Hey mid maine above, first show, eh? Luck of the Dead was with you, this is in my top 10 hottest shows of the hundred or so I was blessed to see! My life changing show had come not long before this night- 2nd show of that same summer's Red Rocks shows. *** Not sure what Pangolin and other's are hearing,but I was at this show and we ALL thought it was one of the hottest nights of the Fall East Coast tour, no question!

Seriously, 5 songs before the drums, including a debut, and a rarity, then the lost Spanish Bollero into some BASS MELT DOWN from Lesh, by request from the crowd.
Going down the Road was so hot then the steady majesty of The Morning Dew, that version alone made the night notable, I feel. And of course a classic closer and a version of US Blues that shows what it was like when not perfunctory as too often in later years. All in All an Amazing Show ~*~

Example: The Other One was a highlight too
NB Lesh response to the chanting crowd from 0:40 to 1:40
And listen from 2:00, leading up to the bass opening, and beyond, perfect Other One,
Yes there are other's likewise beyond awesome, but doesn't get any fiercer or more ominous or musically crisp or sheer fun in any version I know.

Subject: Agree w/JPotts3
This is a solid show top to bottom. The second set has that extra sweet and spicy mix which led John Scott to describe post-drumz as being Szechuan. OK, it's not St. Paul from August, but then again, it's a little bit more prickly and crackly and zippy.

This is definitely the best recording of this show. . . . Finally.

(Yeah, I'm a little biased. Every has a first show; this one is mine. Definitely changed the course of my life.)

Subject: Not bad
I generally enjoy fall 82 but this one didn't do that much for me. Not bad, not great. Jerry's voice starts to crack and strain, often to good effect like on that Morning Dew (which I would peg as my highlight).
I'd say 3.5 stars overall
